Camagüey, Dec. 3 - This Wednesday, December 4, at 8:30 p.m., the Principal Theater unclogs its curtain to shelter the first edition of the Fernando Alonso in memoriam Choreographic Contest, sponsored by the homonymous chair, the Camagüey Ballet and the Provincial Council of the Performing Arts.
24 works are in competition, within three categories: Elementary, Medium, and Professional level; meanwhile, the jury will be composed of the teachers Reynaldo Echemendía, José Antonio Chávez, Elsa Avilés, Freddys Núñez Estenoz and the Doctor of Art Sciences Ismael Albelo.
From tomorrow until Friday 6, the audience can enjoy the premiere pieces, always in the regular schedule of the theater; which precisely, is one of the essences of the event, because the fact that, in recent times, the public is scarce in the presentations of dance companies in the city is very concerned.
The closing gala will have, in addition to the awards, the tribute to María Herminia Martínez, Minita, at the head of the Center for the Promotion of Ballet and Dance, and Regina Balaguer, director of the Camagüey Ballet, for her 40 years dedicated to this art.
